Every song you're trying to find something that going to connect in different ways but for me the songs that I'm really drawn to are inspirational songs that lift you and that everybody can relate to no matter where you're from.
I think the end goal hopefully is to take advantage of the attention I've gotten along the way and use it for good and build some communities and as I get older I can continue to do things and be surrounded by things that are inspirational to me.
Since we launched the original 'Pop Idol' in England I've remained close with Simon Fuller. Working as executive producer on 'American idol' for its first seven years not only was an inspirational journey into the heart of American pop culture it opened my eyes to the untapped potential of the incredibly dynamic young people in this world.
I grew up in a bookless house - my parents didn't read poetry so if I hadn't had the chance to experience it at school I'd never have experienced it. But I loved English and I was very lucky in that I had inspirational English teachers Miss Scriven and Mr. Walker and they liked us to learn poems by heart which I found I loved doing.
I'd like to one day be featured on a list of inspirational people who have made a difference in the world whether it be helping underprivileged people or putting an end to the poaching of wildlife in Africa.
